fantastic cartoon, highly recommended.
foster's home for imaginary friends is a breath of fresh air among the recent droll the kid's channels have lately been pouring out. superb flash animation and completely original character designs grab one's attention from the start.
the show centers around the adventures of blooregard q. kazoo, the imaginary friend of an intelligent little boy named mac. bloo is rather arrogant and competitive, the less desirable side of mac's personality. mac's mother says he's too old to have an imaginary friend, so he took bloo to madame foster's home for abandoned and unwanted imaginary friends. though there appear to be a great many friends currently residing in the home, most episodes center around a principle three, not counting bloo.
wilt is (in my opinion) the strangest friend at the home. he's got one arm and a wonky eye, and yet this does not seem to affect his superb basketball skills or his extremely kind and caring personality. he is a compulsive apologizer ("adoptcalypse now"), and has a very hard time saying no to people ("where there's a wilt there's a way").
Eduardo is tough looking with his large fangs, sharp horns, and skull-shaped belt buckle, but really he is afraid of just about everything. he speaks Spanish and English, and likes potatoes ("bloooo") and puppies ("who let the dogs in?").
coco was the imaginary friend of a little girl stuck on a deserted island. she looks like a cross between a palm tree, a plane, and a bird. all she says is "coco", and she seems to be arguably insane. she lays eggs with things inside them, sometimes bad, sometimes good ("house of bloo").
there are other main characters at foster's, also. Frankie is part of the staff. she is madame foster's granddaughter and keeps the home running. if it weren't for her, i think long ago foster's would have collapsed. Mr. harriman is a large grey rabbit, and he was madame foster's imaginary friend when she was little. madame foster herself is a weird little old lady and isn't afraid to tell you what she thinks ("the big leblooski").
the actual plots for each episode, in my opinion, are just as good as everything else in this show. everyone's gonna have their favourites and the ones they hate, but there's really no solid line. this is definitely a show to check out. if you watch anything on cartoon network, watch this.
